This blog is a continuation of the blog series Integration Suite – Simplified Onboarding and Provisioning  . Here I would explain different ways an Integration Suite customer can view the usage ( instances and messages) reported from the tenants.


SAP Integration Suite comes in different variants to cater the needs of customers.

Refer the SAP note for getting more details on features offered via different SKUs of Integration Suite.

You can also refer SAP Discovery Center to understand the pricing related details.

In this blog, I would walk you through different Usage metrics available for Integration Suite metering.

Let's get started.

Integration Suite - Usage:

Integration Suite usage is measured with two metrics : instances  and messages.

The below table summarizes different metrics displayed for Integration Suite service in the BTP cockpit:

Metric Description

Total number of tenants.

Example: If the value is 3 for the current month,You would be charged for 3 units of tenants against SAP Integration Suite, standard edition (8008411)

This can be viewed from Global Account overview screen.

This means Additional Messages in the Blocks of 10K messages.

Example: If the value is 2 for the current month,You would be charged for 2 units of Additional Messages against SAP Integration Suite, add'l messages (8008414) 
 Total Integration Suite Messages excl. SAP to SAP

 Total Integration Suite messages minus the messages consumed via SAP-to-SAP standard-unmodified integration flows.

This message metric would contribute to the derivation of billable messages.


If you have 2 Integration Suite tenants and let's say in a month the messages consumption from tenant one is 12500 , tenant two is 17500 ,


  • Total Consumed Messages is 12500 + 17500 = 30000

  • For each tenant, you would already get 10000 bundled messages. Since you have 2 tenants, you already have the entitlements for 10000*2 = 20000 messages without any additional cost.

Total chargeable additional messages = 30000 - 20000 = 10000 = 1 block of 10k message.

You would be charged for 1 additional message against 8008414 .
Total Cloud Integration Messages  Total messages consumed via the cloud integration capability. Note that this value includes the SAP-to-SAP messages as well.
Total API Management Messages Total messages consumed via the API Management capability
Total Open Connector Messages Total messages consumed via the Open Connector capability
Excluded SAP-to-SAP Integration Messages Total messages consumed via standard,unmodified content delivered by SAP,which is meant for  SAP-to-SAP Integration scenarios.


Total Integration Suite Messages excl. SAP to SAP = (Total Cloud Integration Messages + Total API Management Messages + Total Open Connector Messages  ) - Excluded SAP-to-SAP Integration Messages

Refer the SAP Note 2942344 - SAP Cloud Platform Integration Suite - Message Metric Definition - SAP ONE Support Launchp...for getting additional details on the definition of Integration Suite message .


Now let's have a closer look at different available screens for viewing the usage from different persona point of view:
